Portrait #4

Angelo Plessas believes that the portrait as art form is at a high point in history. He remarks: "Spending so much time with Facebook, Twitter or any dating sites we literally live in front of our screens and we elaborate different personas or alter egos. People are so creative with their self-image nowadays, (and) I am very interested in this mindset (of presenting) identity and self inside a browser window."

Plessas' aesthetic recalls early digitalised computer worlds - no matter whether of the gaming world or simple RGB pixel spectrums or heavily references early 80s and 90s imagery. Plessas: "I think our screens are our new mirrors and this is intriguing." One has to ask whether Portrait 4 is the counter image of a contemporary digitalised reality, or the reality of a hyper real creation with almost no visual limitation but the picture frame.
